A Review of Tomoe River Paper
Hey, you there.
I want to tell you about my favorite paper.
Stop running away! Why would you do that? How rude!
I want to fill your ear sockets with words that express my love of Tomoe River paper. Surely you’ve heard of it? It’s the hottest paper on the block right now! If there were a reality show about paper, this would be Honey Boo Boo.
Wait, I’ve gone too far. Let’s forget I said that.
The fountain pen world has been a-buzz about this paper for a while. It’s insanely thin yet remarkably well behaved with all manner of writing instruments. How thin you ask? Ever opened a Bible? Yeah, it’s that thin.
So it’s thin and can handle your favorite nibs, what’s the downside? Well, there’s a lot of show-through and it’s a little more expensive than most paper. At first I thought the show-through was bad but I’ve been using both sides for a while and it’s pretty tolerable. As for the price, you’ll forget about that once you try it.
I don’t know what else to tell you, this paper doesn’t feather at all. It’s the greatest paper on earth! Yes, I know that’s a huge claim and I don’t care; it’s true.
I sacrificed a piece of my beloved paper to demonstrate how it handles a plethora of writing utensils. I threw all my pens and pencils in a box and scooped out a variety of things to show you. Now let’s look at the mess I made.
Pretty clean eh? Here’s the back of the page where you see the Sharpie marker is the only trouble maker. Of course, who uses a Sharpie to write anyway?
I bet you want to know what it looks like when you crumple it into a ball. Well alright then.
Oh, you didn’t ask for that? Sorry.
Just a guess but I think you’re wondering how Tomoe River paper handles paper airplane duty. I spent a week folding this piece of Tomoe River paper into an airplane shape just for you. Once I finished that arduous task, I threw it across my basement 1,000 times and gathered the data into a spreadsheet. After many weeks of number crunching and several intense algorithms, I’m happy to report that Tomoe River Paper performs adequately as a paper airplane.
Eat that, science! This paper can do anything! I bet you could print money on it! Wait, no, don’t try that.
So in conclusion, I love Tomoe River paper. It handles all sorts of pens and pencils, and it can fly if you fold it into a vague plane shape. That’s almost magical.
This is the greatest paper on earth. Obviously.
